Google Glass, after it was announced, has probably just got one of its biggest publicity thanks to fashion magazine Vogue. While the average consumers interested in tech already know about Google Glass from various technology news sites, average people who are into fashion has also got an idea how the future may look like if Google Glass is considered a piece of fashion.
It’s because Vogue ran 12-page spread vivid images featuring Google Glass in a futuristic setting.
In the September issue, Vogue dedicated all those 12 pages featuring models wearing Google Glass of various colors. Vogue’s fashion director Tonne Goodman says that color is the trend of the season, and the attitude these models apparently show with a Google Glass is the future. Tonne Goodman oversaw the feature that probably gave Google Glass the largest bump into the fashion industry.
Google has been continuously working to get Google Glass known not just as a piece of wearable technology, but also a piece of fashion accessory that the next generation will want to have. Google Glass made its way to New York Fashion Week last year. And this year, a 12-page spread promotion on Vogue seems to do it well for Google.
Google is also in talks with designers so that it can work with not just one but also many customizable glasses. When that happens, people will have the freedom to choose their own style and equip Google Glass to enter into the next generation of fashion and tech combined with a little heads-up display in front of their eyes.
Do you plan to be one of them? Why and why not?
